Dear son Seth sustained a serious injury 9 days ago. We are spending our days attending appts with specialists at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia and he may be having facial surgery Thursday. He has a broken eye socket, his left eye is now misaligned, double vision. His left eye looks off to the left, avoiding or pushed off by the swelling from the breaks below his eye and along his nose. Not to mention an incidental busted open eye brow which is long since treated with 6 stitches and healed over. No promises or answers about the possibility of full recovery of sight from the man who literally wrote the book on oculoplastics.

Faith steps in.

Oh Jennie....I will kneel down and say a real prayer for your dear boy. I hate to ask...but how? Love to you, Stan and the boys and a kiss and hug to Seth.

Oh my. I am praying for Seth and for you as all wait and hope. Keep us posted.

That boy wasn't running with a sharp stick and poked his eye out, was he?

Well, keep us posted. Will pray for Seth.

Well, you're definitely in the Top 2 in my blog. Both places.

And didn't I recently say You are Number 1? Something like that.

How's the eye/face situation?

Don't know anything much yet. He and Stan are at Wills now. They'll find out if there's surgery tomorrow. His eyeball is turning closer to center, but he still sees double...unless he bends slightly at the waist and cocks his head wildly to the left...then he sees a tad of uni-vision. Well, I'd always be able to find him in a crowd. ~sigh~
I'll check in later and give an update.

Surgery tomorrow!
